Friendly environment with room for advancement.
Purchasing Administrative Assistant (Expediter) (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 30, 2014
In my department among others, the social connection between employees is strong. We are comfortable with each other, joke with each other, and help each other out when needed (either at work or sometimes outside of work). I advanced within 2 months of being hired and others are constantly advancing within the company. Management is lenient except in the warehouse where things are a little more strict because they are much more busy and it is harder for others to pick up the slack when one person is gone. I love it here because of my co-workers and the management. Plus, there is a "Fun Friday" every quarter in which employees can participate in various games. There is "Camp Carlton-Bates" once each summer for employees' children to come and watch a movie and play some games with lunch provided. Casual Fridays happen often in which employees can wear jeans. The Blood Mobile with the Red Cross comes once every 3 months for blood donations as well, making it easy for people who donate to do so. Benefits are great and raises are common, at least with hourly employees. I cannot speak for salary employees.
Lenient management, friendly co-workers, fun fridays, many activities, raises, room for growth
